Our colleague and BH Advisory’s digital expert, M. Yassine Oualid, has just been appointed as the Minister for startup and incubators in the new Algerian Government, led by the Prime Minister Mr. Adelaziz Djerad, as announced on the 2nd of January. He is 26 years old and is now the youngest member of Algeria’s new government.
Little known in the political arena, Oualid was born in Boumerdés, concluding his studies as a medical doctor, but through self-training and a natural vocation, he embraced the world of entrepreneurship and digital technology, notably by creating the first private Algerian hosting company SSH, which focused on the development of the startup ecosystem. Oualid has been working with BH Advisory, our Associated office in Alger, and is responsible for several digital projects in various sectors such as telemedicine and shopping malls’ IT management.
To the new Minister and our colleague Yassine Oualid, we wish the best success in his new functions.
